Tsunami benefit compilation with Serang Dakko, Hamrin Samad and Arrington de Dionyso

Arrington de Dionyso dedicates the release “to the healing and recovery of all those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Palu, Central Sulawesi”

Arrington de Dionyso is donating proceeds from Unheard Indonesia Vol 14 towards the relief effort following the Indonesia 7.5 magnitude earthquake and tsunami on 28 September. At that time, Palu was hosting its annual Nomini music festival on Talise Beach when the Tsunami struck to devastating effect.

Tsunami Benefit Unheard Indonesia Vol 14: Serang Dakko And Friends In Makassar is available now via Bandcamp, and features tracks by Serang Dakko, Arrington de Dionyso & The Free Ensemble with Hamrin Samad, Basri B Sila, Khaeruddin, Ancu Batara, Ochang, Serang Dakko, Bram, Arrington de Dionyso and Siswa SMK. The recordings were made in August this year in Makassar, Sulawesi (an area not directly affected by the tsunami). On the release you can hear Daeng Serang Dakko and Daeng Hamrin Samad play traditional percussion and pui pui.

“The musicians involved would like to dedicate this release to the healing and recovery of all those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Palu, Central Sulawesi,” says the Bandcamp page. “All funds raised from this recording will go directly towards the benefit of recovery efforts.” Donate via Bandcamp . You can also donate (without receiving the compilation) on gofundme.
